17 October 2013 UNESCO City of Literature

Following the speculations that have appeared about the allegedly confirmed date of announcing Krakow a UNESCO City of Literature, I would like to inform everyone that I am personally in touch with persons responsible for awarding the title at UNESCO and no date has yet been determined.

Krakow’s application has undergone the evaluation procedure and received only positive opinions of experts. I was assured that the decisions concerning the matter will be made next week.
